GEMAS Effie MENA Awards 2012 - The Winners

The regional version of the Effie's took place in Dubai on the 21st November 2012. The Effie's is all about effective work. This is more than just a pretty-faced awards show; it's about creative that sells and gets results.

While the Effies have been around since 1968, the regional GEMAS Effies launched in 2009. This year saw a 30% increase in submitted entries, as well as a significant boost in the number of boutique/independent agencies.

Without further ado, below are all the winners. Congratulations to everyone involved, and let's not forget the agencies behind the scenes that also played a part in the winnings.
